Community Pays Respects to Veteran Broadcaster

Lockport, NY – A man who was a broadcaster, politician and even a teacher will be laid to rest in Lockport tomorrow. Clip Smith - best known for his television sportscasts - died over the weekend in a car crash.

A wake will be held Tuesday evening. Funeral services will be held Wednesday morning at the Rapids Bible Church in Lockport.

WBFO'S Eileen Buckley has some reflections about Clip from a former colleague.
